Actor Dennis Quaid is lending his voice to a new docudrama aimed at promoting free speech and calling out needless censorship of political voices.
Quaid, who recently released a debut album with his band The Sharks, will sing on “No Safe Spaces,” the upcoming film from comedian/podcaster Adam Carolla and radio talk show host Dennis Prager.
The actor wanted to lend his song “Out of the Box” to the film because Americans have gotten closed off to different points of view, he said.
“It’s not just Hollywood. Our whole culture has become intolerant,” Quaid, 64, told The Post.
The rock song, produced by Quaid and Jamie James stresses “being open to other points of view and not mindlessly giving yourself over to an ‘ism,’” Quaid said.
Quaid is playing Ronald Reagan, whom he considers the best president of his lifetime, in an upcoming biopic.
The movie’s producer, Mark Joseph, approached Quaid about contributing a song to “No Safe Spaces,” which he also produces.
“When I heard ‘Out of The Box’ it was so obvious that this belonged in the film,” Joseph said.
The movie tackles squelching of free speech, including at colleges where conservative speakers have been protested off campus.
It features actor Tim Allen, commentators and authors Cornel West, Van Jones, Alan Dershowitz, Ben Shapiro, Jordan Peterson, Dave Rubin and others.
Quaid, an independent, doesn’t plan to dive too much into politics, but wants to fight against the instinct to silence others who have different views.
“I don’t give myself to any party or ism. I don’t march lock step with anything or anybody except for God and the values my mom taught me back in Texas,” Quaid said. “So if a president does great things I can acknowledge that no matter his party. I’ve voted for candidates from both parties and I’m a registered independent.”
